Re: Oracle upgrading ..
The versions of Oracle you are running are no longer supported by
Oracle, so the issue is not just the OpenVMS support, but Oracle as
Do you have access to Oracle's Metalink?
It is Oracle's database of known issues and has numerous OpenVMS related
articles on upgrades, verion issues, patch issues, good-to-know info
Latest version of Oracle certified on OpenVMS V7.3-1 that I can recall
is Oracle 126.96.36.199 (.3 might also be available as well). If you don't
want (or can't) upgrade to Oracle 9iR2, the terminal release (Oracle
terminology for last release of a specific version) V188.8.131.52 is also
certified on OpenVMS V7.3-1.
